Main components of a UV system
There are various UV disinfection systems on the market. Whether for commercial, industrial, or domestic use, they are all made up of the same general components. These four components are:
- A reactor
- UV Lamp
- Quartz sleeve
- A control unit, also called a ballast
These elements are the basis of all UV systems, but there are other optional parts such as sensors, solenoid valves…
UV chamber or reactor
In the chamber or UV reactor, there are one or more UV lamps protected by their quartz tubes.
Each reactor has an inlet and an outlet to be connected to the hydraulic system. In addition, a UV reactor is usually made of stainless steel. However, other materials such as HDPE can be used when salt or corrosive water needs to be disinfected.
Different types of reactors can be found for specific applications such as sterilization.
Depending on the model and the flow rate that the system is intended to supply, we supply it with different sized orifices.
